- The difference in mass between a high school boy's discus and a high school girl's discus is 0.616 kilograms. Convert this difference to lbs.

(1 kilogram = 2.205 lb)- 1.36 lb
- 1.358 lb
- 0.279 lb
- 0.2794 lb
- 1.4 lb

- Which of the following equalities is incorrect?
- 1.35 micrometers = 1.35 x 10
^{3}millimeters - 0.079 mL = 0.079 cm
^{3} - 7.43 x 10
